1930, July 23: HMK to RH - Reply to Telegram Re: Silver Lotus

Wednesday, July 23rd, 1930

My dear Miss Harrell,

     Your telegram sent to New York has reached me here and I am very happy that you like my poor little Silver Lotus and that she has touched your heart.  Tears are a great tribute and to thank you, I sent you the original manuscript, penciled and edited as it is.  It is uncut and unpolished by alien hands and just as I wrote it.  Keep it and let me know what you think it gained by the cuts they made in it.  The verses are mine, written long ago and once set to music.  I await your letter and with my thanks for it and your generous kindness, I am
Yours faithfully,
HMK Smith
